News / OK, now *actually* leaving
« on: 05 November, 2004, 10:24:32 PM »
Today's my last day here at Rebellion - just wanted to say "bye" in my official capacity as GNs editor, and thank you all for being one of the saner and more pleasant message boards on the 'net. I'm going to be GNs editor at Titan as of Monday, so no doubt I'll be talking to some of you in a professional capacity in the future - and for those who I don't, I'll see you at DreddCon 6!

Once again, thanks for all your support and kind words while I've been here - and don't forget to keep buying the kick-arse books we're going to be putting out!

For future reference, Dominic Preston will be taking over the GN editor role, so he's the guy to ask about forthcoming material.

All the best to you and yours,

Yeah, but it's now beyond "vapourware" stage. IIRC this project used to be callled TROMBONE, didn't it? I mean, I can see why they dropped the TVGH title for it ;)

From the Guardian media website:-

Chris Morris will be making his hotly anticipated return to Channel 4 early next year with a new comedy show thought to feature the Nathan Barley character from the TVGoHome satirical website.

Kevin Lygo, the Channel 4 director of programmes, said he had seen two episodes of the new show, which is shrouded in the secrecy that normally surrounds Morris projects.

However, the new comedy is understood to have a more traditional sitcom format than the maverick programme-makers previous Channel 4 shows, Jam and Brass Eye.

The show, which is understood to have a working title Box of Slice, will be broadcast as part of Channel 4's winter 2005 schedule from January, Mr Lygo added.

"It's more traditional than the stuff he has done in the past. It's not exactly a sitcom, but people do sit down in it from time to time," he said.

Morris's new show understood to revolve around the Barley character, a public school-educated, Hoxton-dwelling media type who is obsessed with gadgets and extreme sports.

The cast is believed to include Kevin Eldon - who has worked with Morris before on shows including Jam and Brass Eye - Nina Sosanya, whose credits include Teachers and Love Actually, and relative newcomer Ben Wilshaw.

Morris has co-written the new show with Charlie Brooker, the Guardian Guide's TV critic and co-creator of TVGoHome.

As Jack Straw has just said that the US has no plans to attack Iran, I'm guessing Iran. I'd be building a bunker if I lived in Syria and/or North Korea too. If I was a draft-age American, I'd be on my way to the Canadian border - because when GW starts his next crusade for "freedom" against an entirely illusory enemy, he's going to have to force people to sign up.

Maybe someone should get him one of the linked thingies for Xmas, so he can start the war on immorality at home...

*Met the Cat-bloke with all the body mods, and saw a 20 stone Dart Vader pushing around a 25 stone Obi-Wan in a wheelchair. And 2000 Spider-Men, all of whom looked like they'd walked straight off the CRIMEWATCH reconstructions set.

The Fatima Mansions' godlike covers of SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE ("Rimmo! Slammo! Felcho! Fisto!") and EVERYTHING I DO I DO IT FOR YOU ("I haven't had an orgasm, you jerk!").

Also: Fear Factory's SCHOOL (Nirvana), Carter's cover of RENT (Pet Shop Boys) and THIS IS HOW IT FEELS (Inspiral Carpets).

Shakara's the final image, but the cover might be reworked a bit. Devlin's the final image, but the cover will be reworked.

SIMPLY's in the BC book because it's a bloody good story!

Penelope - the answer's "not officially", I'm afraid; the DC deal precludes us selling other material in the US/Canada. That said, I'm sure other people here may be able to suggest non-US places you could find them.
